Re: We get screwed again

I thought somebody was held couldnt see who though

We lsot the game though for the same reason we lost to them at Candlestick in 2011 and lost to the Seahawks last year, We make toomany stupid errors and dig a massive hole and have to climb out of before we are in games. It happens to often to be bad luck. The turnovers are killing us in the big games.

Re: We get screwed again

given the rules and how they are enforced, I dont see how their aint more Defensive PI on Hail marys. Some how Graham gets called for offensive PI, sounds a little like a pile of BS, especially given how ticky tack it was. I will give it to the officiating crew though that they called it straight most of the game, but they had their moments, I cant help but think the Brees Fumble would of been incomplete pass had it been Manning or Brady.

Re: We get screwed again

Jimmy shoved that defender more than anquan shoved Corey white and we got the call then, it was the correct call

Graham didn't need to push off, the ball fell straight to him.

Re: We get screwed again

Wonder what the odds are that if the situation were reversed that the whiners WR would have been flagged?

Re: We get screwed again

I was in the stands three rows up from the hail mary
Pretty obvious push off by Graham

What pisses me off were the 5-6 PI calls killing drives we had including initial ot drive

It wouldn't have come to this when we cant score even a fieldgoal just before half

Drew you cant throw into triple coverge

I guess it would look obvious from the stands when the defender throws himself to the ground like a basketball player trying to draw a charge. He put his hands on the guy, but that is VERY common on hail mary's, yet the one time we complete one, it's flagged.

Re: We get screwed again

I'd be a hypocrite if I complained about the Graham call. Because it annoyed the hell outta me when Michael Irvin made a career out of pushing off receivers and it never got called.

Re: We get screwed again

We got screwed alright, but you're blaming the wrong guys. We got screwed by Drew Brees the turnover machine. As far as the PI goes it was absolutely the right call. Should that DB win an Oscar YES, but it was still a push off. The sad part is I didn't think he needed to push off.

Re: We get screwed again

Sorry it was not the right call. What are the odds of them throwing a defensive pass interference in that situation. The answer is zero percent. If there is no way they would've called it on the defense then that was not enough in my opinion to throw the flag. There is no way it should've been 14 to 0 when we are at home either though. Roger and them can hate all they want because we still win the division and just might get our revenge on SF when it truly counts.

Yea that theory gets thrown around a lot but in reality a lot of games come down to one play. That's the parody in the game today. Just like getting into the playoffs can come down to just one loss.

It also takes some luck. The Falcons won 11 games and the South a couple years back and most of it was luck and games that come down to one play.

Hell in 2009 we had the ball bounce our way a couple of times.

To say a game shouldn't come down to one play sounds nice and all but in reality many games do come down to one play.
